If your PC is stable one day then BSODs the next that means its not stable.

To really test an overclock (IMO) run all 3 tests of prime95 for 12 hours each.

This. Some will say even longer, like 24. But I'd agree that 12 hours of all three should be a good determiner, but you should also run 50-100 passes of Linx with Max RAM.

Using games to test for stability isn't the best way. Overclocking, and finding that perfect 'sweet spot' takes patience and a lot of trial and error. However, the rewards can be quite...well...rewarding.

I'll run all 3 for 12 hours and then fold on my CPU for the rest of its life with me, god knows that I know that my PC knows that it's stable

Thread Starter 
Guys i actually used stress testing software like othos and prime to test for stability in the past when i was doing 4.14 930 rams 1:1. Despite it running stable with prime and othos i dunno why but it would fail on linpack. I understand that the newer tests take a fraction of the time compared to prime or orthos.

Right now i just don't have the patience do all of of that again despite getting an SSD and my windows starts up in a fraction of the time it used to take like in 20 secs.

Anyway even if it's stable it's cos i made the voltages pretty high that's why i started a thread in air cooling asking how to properly attach a smaller fan at the bottom of the heat sink which doesn't have any screw brackets cos a fan is not supposed to be there.
